PICTURES: Model air show draws big crowd
PUBLISHED: 21:00 06 July 2018
A week on from Weston’s festival, eyes were again cast skywards as a model air show drew a large crowd of people to Yatton at the weekend.
The Claverham Drove airfield once again played host to Woodspring Wings’s model aircraft festival and thousands of people enjoyed the displays on Saturday and Sunday.
Model plane enthusiasts brought their aircrafts to take part in the event, which was blessed with sunny weather.
Arguably the highlight of the festival came on Sunday afternoon.
Organisers managed to arrange for a Lancaster Bomber to fly overhead which certainly turned a few heads.
As well as the model plane displays, a number of stalls were set up selling food and drinks – the latter was especially welcome given the warm temperatures.
Woodspring’s air festival has grown hugely since its inaugural event in 1989 and is now the biggest of its kind in the South West.
